5 out of 5 stars on GoodReads


Little Tiger isn’t afraid of nightmares, because she has a friendly Monster under her bed who fights the nightmares and keeps them away. But what happens when a nightmare comes along too big and bad for Monster to fight off? These two friends must work together to keep the nightmares at bay, and discover their own true inner power.

This is so cute and wonderful! Tiger is such an adorable little thing, and I love the sweet conversations she has with her parents about the Monster under her bed.
Monster is brave and resourceful, and he supports Tiger and lovingly protects her every night. They play and work together as a team, so that the camaraderie between them is palpable. Their friendship is so lovely!

The colorful illustrations really breathe life into the story, and I love the art style! There are some really cute details in the illustrations, like the “Fang Wash” that Tiger uses to brush her teeth.

The story has a deep impact for me even as an adult, because I suffer from terrible nightmares quite frequently. I wish I had a friendly Monster under my bed!

This book would be perfect to read to children ages 5-12, and a good one to read together before bed.
